No Support For 9/11 Health Bill from The House of Obama

Thanks to Hot Air, I'm speechless.

Who thought THIS dog would hunt?

The Obama administration stunned New York's delegation Thursday, dropping the bombshell news that it does not support funding the 9/11 health bill.

The state's two senators and 14 House members met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just hours before President Obama implored in his speech to the nation for Congress to come together and deliver a government that delivers on its promises to the American people.

So the legislators were floored to learn the Democratic administration does not want to deliver for the tens of thousands of people who sacrificed after 9/11, and the untold numbers now getting sick.

Allahpundit is also speechless:

Total cost: $11 billion … over 30 years. The optics of this are so appallingly bad, especially in light of the rumors circulating about the U.S. and UK offering the Taliban $1 billion to play ball in Afghanistan (which may be paying off), that I can’t believe there’s no ulterior motive. Is this actually some sort of kabuki aimed at giving Obama an excuse to reverse himself about the spending freeze?

Wow. That's all. For now. Just wow. Un-freakin' believable.

I wish some liberal would stop by about now and tell me why this is a good idea? Why they still support this clown? Anybody?

Personally as a universal health care supporter (which makes me an unamerican socialist or something) I support this strategy IF it is to troll middle America and shame them into supporting health coverage for all.

If it's not for that reason, yeah it does kinda look stupid and he should feel bad.

Middle America doesn't need to be shamed or trolled. We need health care reform but not government-imposed health care as our only option.
